COLORADO SPRINGS — A year ago, Brandon Swenson ran a faster time, yet finished further back in the pack at the 3A state cross country championships. This year, in 2A at the Norris-Penrose Event Center, the Clear Creek sophomore was presented with all sorts of new challenges.

“This year was harder because my hip was hurting, and I was really dehydrated with the heat,” Swenson said.
